5 Things: New in Beauty (Week 3 February 2015)

1. NARS Dual-Intensity Blushes
Coming soon in NARS store are the Dual-Intensity Blushes. There are 6 combinations to choose from. Technically not all the combo are blushes, some are for contour and highlight. All combination are nicely paired and there's something for everyone from this collection.To check out all the palette, go to The Style & Beauty Doctor.

2. Juicy Couture Hollywood Royal EDT
Avid perfume bottle collector cannot miss this one. The bottle is inspired by Hollywood glamour and golden star panel on the bottle is definitely something special. The perfume notes lean towards vanilla and marshmallow.

3.  L'Occitane Women's Day 2015 Beauty Balm
In conjunction of International Women's Day on 8th of March, each year L'Occitane launches their limited edition beauty balm to pay tribute to the women of Burkina Faso. This year, L'Occitane features the Shea Butter Ultra Soft Balm with apricot scent for this cause. 100% from the proceed of sales will help promote women's entrepreneurship in Africa.

4. Benefit Roller Lah Mascara
Rumour says that this will be the next cult product. The mascara wand is designed in a way that resembles the 1960's velcro hair curler. This mascara gives you the length, volume and curl at the same time. You don't even need a lash curler prior to applying your mascara. I'm totally looking forward to get this one.

5. Clarins UV Plus Anti-Pollution Day Screen High Protection SPF 50
Following the success of the UV Plus Anti-Pollution Day Screen High Protection SPF40, Clarins have came up with the same effective sunscreen but with higher SPF. Watch out for this high protective sunscreen available soon in March.

Look out for M.A.C.'s collaboration with the Cinderella movie. This is a full collection, the colours are leaning to the nude and pastel side. If you're a fan of basic colours in makeup, do check out this collection. As a Cinderella fan (my favourtite character in the entire Disney world), I feel like I'm obliged to get something from the collection. My pick is the lipstick, but I can't decide which colour to go for. For swatches and review, check out Temptalia's blog.

2. Chanel La Perle de Chanel Collection Spring 2015
Inspired by the graceful world of ballet, this delicate makeup collection features rosy tones and glimmering metallics in beautiful balance. Taking center stage: a limited-edition five-shade palette featuring romantic lipsticks and glosses to choreograph a colourful lip look.

Korres Pomegranate Cleansing Scrub Cleans from Inside Out

When I first unpack my package from Luxola, I was excited to find my Korres Pomegranate Cleansing Scrub inside. (I've probably repeated this a thousand times on my blog, I'm going to say it again.... I'm a big fan of Korres skincare.) I was also shocked at the same time. The size of the scrub is not even half of my palm. The size resembles deluxe size, but it is indeed the full size product.

I went to try it out the same night I got it and the next day my face suffered from tiny break outs. I didn't notice that this scrub was the cause of my break outs. The next week, I use it and again my face developed break outs. For awhile I was scared to use it until I ran out of facial scrub and try it on again. Soon I realized that the break out wasn't the effect of bad product but the scrub actually removes all the impurities from inside out. It takes awhile for me to understand this product. After I know it well, I realized this is THE THING!

Before you run out of the house to purchase it, I'll list down some findings about this product so you can use it the way it suppose to be:

1. The grains of the scrub is rough and the beads are bigger than other scrub. If you have open wounds, bad acne, bumps or laceration on your skin, it is best to avoid using it.

2. The scrub will bring out all the impurities that trapped underneath your pores. Some of it didn't make its way out of your pores, this is why break outs happen. It is best for you to perform extraction on your skin after using this scrub. Regular use of the scrub will prevent breakouts too.

3. This is not your daily scrub because of the harsh grains. Use it only on a weekly basis.

I will recommend this scrub to those who have clogged pores - especially those with oily skin around the T-zone. It does an amazing job in cleansing and leaves your skin thoroughly cleansed.

You can purchase this online from Luxola website for RM48. You can also view other people's review on the product from the product page before you decide to purchase it.
